Listen Closely, Fuckbags

August 21, 2012

“In the meantime it’s wrong for us to compel pro-life people to pay taxes to fund abortion.”

Yet more good stuff from the wagglers who are trying to distract y’all.  This time from Steve King.

We are all compelled to pay taxes for shit we find immoral.  Like killing Afghanis, political graft, capital punishment and the incarceration of innocent people.

It doesn’t excuse us from standing at a pulpit and making shit up.  Or claiming that our personal experience has any bearing on the entire world.

I personally have never heard of any situation where any Tuvaluans have become pregnant via any means or have eaten vegetables or have gone swimming in the ocean.  Nevertheless, common sense dictates that this would have happened.

Unprotected intercourse can result in pregnancy.  It’s not a great leap, Steve.  Use your brain.

Oh, that’s right, this is just another one of those slickster bullshit speeches that are supposed to whip people into a frenzy.  Good job, Steve-o.

What he meant was…..

Yet again, folks, if you have to continually tell people you didn’t say what they think you said, you’re doing it wrong.

Did he do it on purpose?  Probably.  Do I know that for certain?  No.

Does it matter if I know for certain?  No.

What matters is that this is not how the process was meant to work.  It’s offensive to the entire citizenry of the world.

It’s slithery snake behavior.  It is the behavior of the fringe element.  Sadly, the fringe element gets the most press.

I’m not going to argue with anyone about morality.  It is not a winnable debate from any angle.

What I will argue for is that we don’t need people like Akin and King in positions of power.  They are clueless.  They are aggressive.  They are not looking out for any of you.  They will do and say whatever the fuck they want.  And for the most part, we let them.  It clouds the issues.  It misleads people.  It is ruining our country.

REPORTER: You support the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act that would provide federal funding for abortions to a person that has been forcefully raped. But what if someone isn’t forcibly raped and for example, a 12-year-old who gets pregnant? Should she have to bring this baby to term?

KING: Well I just haven’t heard of that being a circumstance that’s been brought to me in any personal way and I’d be open to hearing discussion about that subject matter. Generally speaking it’s this: that there millions of abortions in this country every year. Millions of them are paid for at least in part by taxpayers. I think it’s immoral for us to compel conscientious objecting taxpayers to fund abortion through the federal government, or any other government for that matter. So that’s my stand. And if there are exceptions there, then bring me those exceptions let’s talk about it. In the meantime it’s wrong for us to compel pro-life people to pay taxes to fund abortion.
